Berkley Gulp! Goby
Pics said it all. caught me loads of fishes with this lure. The one with single bass, 2 different person whose live in area 10+ yrs, its was the biggest bass they ever seen from that lake. as for the deuce, I had never experience any like this. both bass was crazy and fighting over the lure and resulted both of them was a single hook! I dunno if anyone have experience like I had. Cant wait to use this for fishing tourneys this upcoming season!
Cons- worn out and torn up fast after 5+ bites so to me, it pricey, could have increase more # of pack inside

If you are searching for lunker bronzebacks, this is the lure for you! I take three trips anually to Lake Erie for some smallmouth fishing. My number one bait of choice is a drop-shotted Berkley Gulp! Goby. The 4" size is perfect for the fat smallies, and the colors match the real thing perfectly. The Gulp! material, like on all the Gulp! baits, are super-soft yet very durable and last up to five thrashing smalles. The soft material and thin taper design makes for the best action of any goby bait I've ever seen. The Gulp! attractant makes fish want to hold on long enough to set a bone-jarring hookset even at deep Erie depths. My color of choice would be Green Pumpkin/Copper Flake. I fish my dropshot rigs on a Kistler Helium 2 LTX 6' 9" Medium spinning rod with a fast action rod with a Daiwa Fuego Spinning Reel, using 6lb. Berkley Trilene Fluorocarbon and a 3/8 oz. dropshot weight. My other setup is a
G. Loomis 6'10" GLX Dropshot Mag-Light power Ex-Fast action spinning rod with a Shimano Stradic MgFa spinning reel and the same line. Use a #4-#2 size octopus or octopus circle hook and nosehook the Goby on a dropshot for best results.

These baits don't look like the picture. The ones I got were oddly shaped globs that stunk. I couldn't even figure out how to rig it because it was so awkward. The plastic was really soft and didn't hold up at all after running a hook through it.

Gulp Goby in Smelt - Flounder Killer!
This is by far the best artificial bait I have ever used!!! I fish saltwater only and use these to catch flounder, speckled trout, and red drum. The flounder are my target fish but I never get mad when trout and reds want some of the action.
For you flounder fishermen (or ladies) that are use to fishing live minnows for flounder; you have to wait for the flounder to scale it before setting the hook. NOT the case when using Gulp bait; you set the hook hard as soon as you feel the bite and you have him! The gulp has no scales and I guess that is why they "gulp" it; they inhale it! As soon as you feel the fish set the hook hard!
